Warmth, charm and character brim from this property so make yourselves right at home and settle down in the cosy lounge with the wood burner roaring. Head out for adventures straight from your door.

Sitting just outside of The Brecon Beacons National Park, 4 miles from Hay-on-Wye, there are plenty of quaint villages and bustling towns to visit throughout your stay. Renowned for its literary heritage Hay-on-Wye is a pretty market town where you can indulge in something to eat, browse quintessential book shops and explore The Warren, a Site of Special Scientific Interest meadow perfect for dog walks. The adventurous amongst you can travel 9 miles to the Black Mountain Activities centre where you can try your hand at rock climbing, caving and gorge walking to name just a few sessions on offer.

As you enter this property you can make use of the handy drying cupboard, perfect for boots and coats post-adventure. Take a moment to settle in front of the wood burner and curl up on the sofa; the wood burner sits amongst exposed bricks in the original feature fireplace beautifully complementing the oak beams above. Switch on the TV for a lazy evening or simply enjoy the peace and quiet. Head into the kitchen to cook up a storm as you gaze out over the valley in this light space. The family bathroom sits on the ground floor and is home to a bath and shower overhead so you can soak or rinse off after walks. Climb stairs to the first floor where the two bedrooms are. The double has bright bursts of colour and the twin is snug with a sloping ceiling, please take care.

Watch for external steps as you descend into the garden area at this lovely cottage. Bask in the sun on the long lawn, great for younger guests to run around and play. Alternatively sit at the furniture and get the BBQ firing for an outdoor feast.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
